    Abstract [en]

    Intersections and gaps in linked, shared and networked heritage One of the key questions archives, libraries and museums face today is how to deal with blurring boundaries between different institutions as well as between institutions and people’s everyday life as digital environments have become increasingly important for how people, material culture and heritage practices links. This project studies current intersections and gaps between heritage authorities and political cultural identity work among people in place-based communities as well as among those who are united by disability, sexuality and gender expression, ethnicity or religion.

    LHBTQI-perspektiv och kulturarv: Aspekter på urval, överväganden och tillrättalägganden.2016In: Nordisk Museologi, ISSN 1103-8152, no 2, p. 3-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Todaymuseums strive to include LHBTQI perspectives in exhibitions and audiencedevelopment, as well as in the collections. This articleis an attempt to explore three cases of archiving LHBTQI memories andexperiences. We use a broad definition of “archiving” to also include digitalcollections, exhibitions and social media so as to investigate differentapproaches. The first case we approach is the website Unstraight Museum wherewe bring to the surface the ways in which its digital collection creates acollective memory, makes LHBTQI experiences visible and queer the officialheritage. Our second case is the Museum of World Culture’s exhibition Playground. Here we bring the attentionto the ways in which curatorial themes such as love and family invite straightpeople to identify with unstraight experiences. Our last case is activists’ blogs at the webplatform Tumblr, which we here view as an archive, waiting to be explored bycultural historians. For now it is temporary and ephemeral, in two respects. Firstly,the flowsare constantly updated and thereby changing. Secondly, there is no guaranteethat posts and accounts will be saved for the future.

    Kultur2011In: Perspektiv på turism och resande: begrepp för en kritisk turismanalys / [ed] Josefina Syssner, Lund: Studentlitteratur , 2011, 1, p. 119-145Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kapitlet ger en översikt av kulturbegreppets olika innebörder och användning med utgångspunkt från den historiska utvecklingen av begreppet sedan 1600-talet. Ursprunget finns det latinska ordet för odling. Det mycket varierade språkbruket "kultur" kan väsentligen återföras på fyra delvis överlappande huvudbetydelser av begreppet (1) det skönandliga eller civilisatoriska (2) det antropologiska (3) det artefaktiska och (4) det sektorsinriktade. Idéhistoriskt har begreppen etablerats i denna ordning. Kultur i betydelsen andlig odling - estetisk, vetenskaplig och intellektuell - eller ("finkultur") etableras under 1600-talet i Europa. Kultur i betydelsen av en sektor av samhället dyker upp först på 1900-talet. Kapitlet belyser hur kulturbegreppets olika huvudbetydelser avspeglas i samband med turism och hur man kan utnyttja begreppet för analys av turism.

    Det roterande chefskapet i Åtvidabergs kommun: En studie av samspelet mellan kommunchefer och politiker ur ett maktperspektiv2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay aims to shed light on the interplay between leaders and politicians at Åtvidabergs municipality, where they have a system of rotating leadership which consists of a group of five leaders where one at the time holds the position of the formal leader at two months intervals. The essay is based on qualitative interviews with both municipality leaders and politicians working in Åtvidaberg. We implement a perspective of power when we analyze our informants statements, especially by relating those to Dennis H. Wrongs forms of power.

    Statistical modelling of team training in a microworld study2014In: Proceedings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society Annual Meeting, Sage Publications, 2014, Vol. 58, p. 894-898Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A command and control environment is a dynamic and complex setting with complicated technical systems where teams of operators interact to reach shared goals. This study presents an experiment in which we, by means of Structural Equation Modeling (SEM), explain the relations between basic concepts of command and control environments: mental workload, frustration, situational awareness, and performance. This paper reports a LISREL analysis of the Baroutsi, Berggren, Nählinder, & Johansson (2013) data. From that data, a new latent variable “Frustration” emerges, which now can be included in the model.

    The relationship between Workload, Teamwork, Situation Awareness, and Performance in Teams A microworld study2011In: Proceedings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society Annual Meeting, Sage Publications, 2011, Vol. 55, p. 851-855Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In modern military organizations teamwork performance is central, yet the underlying factors contributing to such performance are debated. The purpose of this paper was to investigate how several known teamwork measures relate to a prior model of operator performance (Nählinder et al, 2004). This study expands this model to the team level and in the command and control domain. Specifically, this paper studies the relationship between individual and team workload measures, situation awareness measures, and performance measures in 18 two-person teams.                 

    The study has two major findings: Firstly, the various team cognition measures statistically cluster into four meaningful concepts (workload, teamwork, situation awareness and performance).                 

    Secondly, a Structural Equation Model indicates that the relationship between the various individual and team measures can be described in a model resembling the model found in previous studies (Nählinder et al, 2004). In particular, the results show that the general workload in the microworld study has a negative effect on both teamwork and situation awareness. Teamwork, in turn, also affects situation awareness, which has major impact on performance.

    Designing for Empathy in Elderly Care: Exploration of Opportunities to Deliver Behaviour Change Interventions through mHealth Applications, to Promote Empathic Behaviour in Elderly Home Care Nursing Assistants2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    The Swedish population is ageing quickly and the system for elderly home care is under increasing pressure. Staff turnover is high, nursing assistants are reporting stress, and employers have to recruit staff lacking sufficient experience. These factors are barriers to empathic care, considered essential to patient health outcomes. Elderly care should rely on cognitive empathy, be other-oriented and improve the client’s situation based on contextual understanding. There is a need for education and support for nursing assistants, so that they can provide empathic care.

    Purpose

    The thesis explores empathy as a skill in elderly home care to identify opportunities of promoting empathy in the client-nursing assistant interaction, by means of behaviour change interventions delivered through an mHealth application that nursing assistants already use at work.

    Method

    A group interview was conducted with six nursing assistants from four elderly home care organisations in a Swedish municipality, to learn about their experience of empathy at work, and factors affecting their ability to give empathic care. The respondents were using the same mHealth application to get and provide information about client visits. The Behaviour Change Wheel framework was used to analyze behavioural drivers of empathic care in elderly home care.

    Results

    Influences on empathic behaviour was identified in all 14 domains in the Theoretical Domains Framework. 13 target behaviours, 7 Intervention Functions and 45 Behaviour Change Techniques were suggested as suitable candidates to investigate for intervention development.

    Conclusion

    Empathy seems possible to promote through resource-efficient digital behaviour change interventions. Future studies may use this work as a starting point for development of interventions to promote empathic behaviour in elderly care.

    Abstract [en]

    Clinical practice, health care provision, and medical research cannot be performed without the help of a large variety of medical technologies, from neonatal technologies to technologies of aging and terminal care. Many are the results of recent technoscientific innovations in molecular biology or computer science, or of combinations of biotechnology and information technology. They are used for maintaining bodies with the help of machines, pills, devices, and “foreign” tissues and organs; for representing and visualizing bodies; and for reproductive purposes, both as contraceptive techniques and as techniques for infertility treatment, testing, and screening. Medical technologies evolve within social and political networks. They circulate globally in an international “technoscape” of medicines, devices, machines, procedures, and understandings. Their use may alter existing practices, cultures, and institutional structures, but they are also shaped by them and by a multitude of different actors, including medical professionals, regulators, multinational companies, and patient communities.

    Svenska Rikskonserter och kulturpolitikens estetik2018In: Nordisk kulturpolitisk tidskrift, ISSN 1403-3216, E-ISSN 2000-8325, Vol. 21, no 1-2018, p. 73-93Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Although aesthetics, primarily in the shape of the arts, can be seen as the raison d’etreof cultural policy, it is seldom in the forefront of cultural policy research. This article focuses on the aesthetics of Concerts Sweden, which was founded in 1968 and closed down in 2010. With the aim to give high quality music to all citizens around the country and its concentration on mobile concerts and the production of records, Concerts Sweden initially rested on a Bildung aesthetics thoroughly elaborated in the white papers underlying its foundation. This Bildung aesthetics was based on classical views on Bildung and the emergence of modern theories of aesthetics, from the late eighteenth century by foremost Immanuel Kant and Friedrich Schiller. Kant changed the way of looking at aesthetics, but in the 20th century his view on the a priori based universal character of aesthetical judgment lost its prior credibility. This is also reflected in the restricted aesthetic claims of most national cultural policies during the century, and in the history of Concerts Sweden (Svenska Rikskonserter), which musical-aesthetic platform changed when the aim to “counteract the negative effects of commercialism” was introduced as one of the goals of the new Swedish national cultural policy in 1974. With the support of this goal Concerts Sweden drifted away from the Bildung aesthetics prescribed for it in the white papers when it was founded, but without explicitly abandoning it. The history of Concerts Sweden shows that aesthetics had a stronger position in Swedish cultural policy prior to its reorganization in the 1970s, when it became more subordinated to political viewpoints. From this point of view, the Swedish cultural policy of music successively takes on a post-aesthetic character from the 1970s, in the sense that it no longer takes principle stands in matters of aesthetics, except in pragmatic ways, as when it for example comes to the assignment of subsidies based on judgments of aesthetical values or qualities.

    Kalvbrässkontroversen: Veterinärmedicinaren Elis Sandberg, cancermedlet THX och skolmedicinen i Sverige från 1952 till 19892016In: Lychnos, ISSN 0076-1648, p. 129-154Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract. The Thymus Controversy. Elis Sandberg and the controversial cancer drug THX in Sweden 1952 – 1989

    This article explores the controversy surrounding Swedish veterinary Elis Sandberg and the alternative cancer drug THX from the early 1950’s up until Sandberg’s death in 1989. THX was an extract for injection made from calves’ thymus glands, as Sandberg − contrary to the medical community − was convinced that the thymus gland was an important agent in the body’s defense against cancer. The aim of the article is to outline the key themes and turning points of the conflict, but also to explain how and why it erupted and continued for decades. The controversy is examined in connection to a broad range of contexts, such as conventional medicine, health care policies, medical jurisdiction and political change. Thereby, the article shows how a lack of legislation on pharmaceutical trials, government attempts to delegitimize alternative medicine, a reformed health care system and a group of cancer patients in desperate need of effective treatment, created a cultural and structural space for THX. Further, it is discussed how early attempts at closing the controversy using scientific arguments failed, and later ones created public outcry, resonating with the growing critique of medicine and authorities in general in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Analytically, special attention is paid to the roles and changing meanings assigned to patients during the course of the controversy. It is suggested that the closure of the conflict may, at least in part, have been due to an increasing cultural relevance of patients as advocates for individual choice in medical treatment in the 1980’s.

     

    Keywords: controversial science, patient advocacy, history of medicine, Swedish welfare state, science and technology studies.

    Coherence of pregnancy planning within couples expecting a child2015In: Midwifery, ISSN 0266-6138, E-ISSN 1532-3099, Vol. 31, no 10, p. 973-978Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: joint planning and decision-making within couples have evident effects on the well-being of the family. The purpose of this study was to investigate the level of pregnancy planning among pregnant women and their partners and to compare the coherence of pregnancy planning within the couples. Methods: pregnant women and their partners were recruited from 18 antenatal clinics in seven Swedish counties between October 2011 and April 2012. Participants, 232 pregnant women and 144 partners, filled out a questionnaire with questions about pregnancy planning, lifestyle and relationship satisfaction. 136 couples were identified and the womens and partners answers were compared. Results: more than 75% of the pregnancies were very or rather planned and almost all participants had agreed with their partner to become pregnant There was no significant difference in level of pregnancy planning between women and partners, and coherence within couples was strong. Level of planning was not affected by individual socio-demographic variables. Furthermore, 98 % of women and 94 % of partners had non distressed relationships. Conclusion: one of the most interesting results was the strong coherence between partners concerning their pregnancy and relationship. Approaching these results from a social constructivist perspective brings to light an importance of togetherness and how a sense and impression of unity within a couple might be constructed in different ways. As implications for practice, midwives and other professionals counselling persons in fertile age should enquire about and emphasise the benefits of equality and mutual pregnancy planning for both women and men.

    Going with the affective flows of digital school absence text messages2017In: Learning, Media and Technology, ISSN 1743-9884, Vol. 42, no 4, p. 406-419Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Focusing on digital text messages containing information about students’ absences and sent to parents by schools, the paper investigates the way school absenteeism is produced within affective assemblages. The paper unfolds a theoretical and methodological approach of ‘going with’ the text messages, in entanglements of affective flows. The empirical engagements, produced together with multiple agents in two Swedish schools, show that within the assemblages of human and nonhuman bodies, the text messages can become ‘stirrers’ that evoke nervousness and anxiety, but also excitement and feelings of control that affect the production and conception of absenteeism. The affective flows of text messages thus travel in all directions, with and against notions of linearity. The conclusion emphasizes how the text messages, as affective materialities, are an inextricable part of the production of school absenteeism in multiple and sometimes unexpected ways.

    Abstract [sv]

    I ett historiskt perspektiv har skolslöjden under lång tid satt spår i det allmänna medvetandet, åtminstone i de nordiska länderna. Hos många små och stora slöjdare tycks just detta skolämne ha stannat kvar i minnet. Det representerar ett stycke materiell kultur, som en gång gjorde den svenska skolan känd långt utanför landets gränser.

    Den svenska skolslöjden har en märklig historia, vilket framgår av bokens tretton kapitel, från första början fram till dags dato. Här redogörs för vad slöjd egentligen är; om handens visdom; slöjdens förhistoria och om den kvinnliga skolslöjden. Carl Malmstens betydelse avhandlas liksom hur läroplaner ändrats. Folkbildning och slöjdlärarutbildning etc.

    Även andra slöjdarter uppmärksammas i faktarutor. Boken är rikt illustrerad. Den har alla möjligheter att bli ett standardverk med lång livstid som referens och faktabank.

    Aiding transitions: climate and environment in Swedish research aid policy 1988-20162017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Strong local scientific research capacities remain a central piece of the puzzle when it comes to producing relevant knowledge and solutions to various development challenges. There is still great inequality concerning resources for higher education and research globally, however, and in order to be able to tackle climate change – international aid and collaboration is often upheld as key. The amount of aid that is classified as climate and environment related is on the rise, but similar support related to the sustainable use and management of resources and the environment have constituted part of Swedish (and other) aid for many decades. This paper focuses on Swedish aid and takes its empirical point of departure in 1988, when the environment was included among the aid goals. Using discourse analysis, I will narrow in on the case of research aid policy and analyze in what ways changing environments and climate change have been portrayed as important for development between 1988 and 2016. What can we learn from the recent past and how does it compare to today? What is sustainable development in this context; how have problems and solutions been described and what is perceived to be the role of scientific research in creating transitions from less to more “sustainable”?

    Managing critical incidents in grocery shopping by community-living people with Alzheimer's disease.2013In: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014, Vol. 4, no 20, p. 292-301Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: People with Alzheimer's disease (AD) remain in their ordinary housing and continue to use public space despite increasing disabilities. The aim of this study was to discover and describe problematic situations and critical incidents that took place when people with AD performed the ordinary outside-home activity of grocery shopping and how these were met by them. Methods: Individual interviews (n = 12) and participant observations (n = 8) with six informants were performed and analysed using a grounded theory approach. Results: The findings are presented in six categories and each category describes different critical incidents and actions used to meet these. The categories were: (a) Remembering to bring things when leaving home, (b) Finding the way to and from the grocery shop without getting lost, (c) Finding a way through traffic when not feeling safe, (d) Finding objects when organization is disrupted, (e) Choosing when a lot of objects and products are available, and (f) Finding a method to pay when payment opportunities are restricted. The core category, “A challenging and unstable process of meeting critical incidents in grocery shopping”, was characterised by reflections and creativity to achieve relative harmony in each critical incident. Conclusions: In conclusion, it is important that relatives and professionals take into account relevant actions to help people with AD coordinate with their environment.Read More: http://informahealthcare.com/doi/abs/10.3109/11038128.2012.752031

    Barnidrottens spridning, kulturindustrin och kulturstudiernas möjligheter2011In: Kulturstudier, kropp och idrott: perspektiv på fenomen i gränslandet mellan natur och kultur / [ed] Tolvhed, Helena & Cardell, David, Malmö: Idrottsforum.org , 2011, p. 85-105Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna antologi diskuteras idrott som ett föränderligt samhällsfenomen i gränslandet mellan kultur och natur. Bland annat diskuteras idrotts-hybrider inom turism- och kulturindustrin, som till exempel nöjesparker och lekland, och friluftslivets sportifiering som ett uttryck för samtida äventyrlig entreprenörskultur.

    Det kapitel som Klas Sandell (Friluftsliv i förändring och Karlstads universitet) skrivit, tillsammans med Johan Arnegård (Stockholms universitet), fokuserar två dagsaktuella tendenser i idrottens "gränstrakter" till delvis överlappande samhällsfenomen som sport, friluftsliv och naturturism. Dessa tendenser är friluftslivets sportifiering samt idrottsaktiviteternas frigörelse från landskapet. Med friluftslivets sportifiering avses tendensen att traditionella friluftsaktiviteter som att vandra, klättra eller paddla i naturpräglade landskap transformeras till tävling (multisport), samtidigt som nyare idrottsaktiviteter som brädsporter, kiting och glidflygning å andra sidan ofta karakteriseras av äventyr, upplevelser och tävlingskritiska förhållningssätt, traditionellt närliggande friluftsliv. 

    Mediers framställningar av dessa "livsstilsporter" poängterar också ofta upplevelse och känsla snarare än tävlingsresultat. Det nya språnget i idrottsaktiviteternas friställning från landskapet ("landskapsdekontextualisering") som man lyfter fram handlar om att den landskapsrationalitet som ligger i att standardisera de rumsliga förutsättningarna för att t.ex. springa ikapp, idka bollspel eller kasta spjut — och som sedan länge är helt integrerad i stora delar av idrotten — nu håller på att dramatiskt förändra referensramarna även för aktiviteter som traditionellt har behållit en starkt platsberoende landskapsanknytning. Detta är en tendens som vi kan se både i sedan länge etablerade fenomen som äventyrsbad och klätterväggar, men också i ännu så länge mer spekulativa varianter som skidåkning inomhus, såväl utför som på längden, forspaddlingsbanor med vattenpumpar och datorspel i fullskala.

    Family theme parks, happiness and children’s consumption: From roller-coasters to Pippi Longstocking2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book provides an ethnographic contribution to research on children’s consumption, family life and happiness. Various and shifting notions of happiness are explored, as well as conditions for and challenges to happiness, through an analysis of video-recorded interviews and mobile ethnography conducted in two of the most popular theme parks in Sweden. Initially, the study outlines how previous research has conceptualized happiness in association with time and place in a rather static way. Based on a treatise of notions of happiness in philosophy and the social sciences, there is a turn in this thesis towards practice. It generates fundamental knowledge about the complexity of happiness. By employing this approach, it is possible to highlight how happiness is enacted as part of and in relation to ideals of family life, time, childhood, money, consumption, experiences and material things. As we explore the practices of children and their families, we discover that shifting meanings of happiness are located in contemporary culture, where emotions and consumption are of central importance.

    The approach is interdisciplinary, and draws on theoretical and methodological contributions in sociology, anthropology and Science and Technology Studies (STS). Notions of meshwork and enactment become important for the exploration of happiness as a complex and changing matter, which productively involves social relations and material things. Throughout the thesis there is a dialogue with previous research on happiness, consumption and childhood which highlights the importance of exploring messy practices, in movement. It is argued that explorations of practice contribute to a critical understanding of how happiness and contemporary ideals of childhood can be approached – through consumption and as part of citizenship in a consumer society where happiness is of central importance.

    Athens of Sardinia: Culture and Nature2013In: Anuac, ISSN 2239-625X, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 147-155Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    At the beginning of the 21stcentury Nuoro, capital of the province with the same name situated in the Barbagia district, central Sardinia, has approximately 37 000 inhabitants. At the previous turn of the century it had roughly 7 000 inhabitants. In spite of its then smallness as well as relative isolation due to its inland position, the town gave birth to several authors, poets, painters, sculptors, and other intellectuals who were to become widely known in the years to follow, thus Nuoro’s denomination as Athens of Sardinia. In this article I will present the most renowned of these personalities, before taking the reader on a fictive walk through the town in order to give further evidence of its extraordinarily rich and lively culture. I then intend to show that in spite of its richness culture does not in any way drive out the love and respect for nature among the Nuoresi[i]as has often been demonstrated to be the case in other parts of South Italy. Thus, this article’s subtitle Culture and Nature instead of the more commonly used ‘culture versus nature’ when pointing at the dichotomy between the two domains.

    [i] Plural of nuorese meaning from Nuoro.

    Jag är etrusk: Lokal identitet i tre närliggande städer i dagens Etrurien2017In: Romhorisont, ISSN 0349-5590, no 66, p. 18-20Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Jag är etrusk, sa en medelålders man när han presenterade sig för mig. Jag hade just kommit till Tarquinia för ett antropologiskt fältarbete och detta sätt att presentera sig väckte min nyfikenhet. Sedan tidigare var jag väl bekant med städerna Blera och Cervteri, som liksom Tarquinia ligger norr om Rom i den delen av Italien som för mer än två tusen år sedan utgjorde etruskernas rike, men aldrig hade jag hört någon uttrycka sin identitet på detta sätt.  Det skulle dock visa sig att den här mannen var bara den första i raden av Tarquiniabor som jag mötte som uttryckte sin identitet genom att kalla sig etrusk. I det följande kommer jag att visa hur det görs och jämföra det med situationen i Blera och Cerveteri samt ge en möjlig förklaring till de skillnader städerna emellan som jag kunnat notera.

    Abstract [it]

    Questa è la storia di un’antica casa situata a Nuoro, una piccola città nel centro della Sardegna, Italia. In questa casa, che ho conosciuto da quando sono arrivata a Nuoro, nella primavera del 2010, una stessa famiglia ha vissuto per almeno cinque generazioni. Fin dal primo momento in cui sono entrata ho sentito fortemente che la casa e i suoi abitanti sono una cosa sola e hanno creato una atmosfera molto aperta e amichevole [1]. In questo articolo il mio scopo è quello di mostrare questo processo continuamente in corso. Sono le voci dei membri della famiglia che verranno ascoltate, così che ciò che segue è una storia basata empiricamente sulla stretta relazione tra una particolare famiglia e la loro casa; scriverò dunque di vita sociale, di memoria e, soprattutto, del sentimento di appartenenza. «Gli edifici, come le poesie e i riti, sostanziano le culture» (Glassie 2000:17).

    Romer – 500 år i Sverige: språk, kultur, identitet2016Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Romani chib har talats i Sverige i 500 år. Det är inte ett enhetligt, väldefinierat språk, som man kan skriva en enkel grammatik om. Tvärtom, i Sverige talas en stor mängd väldigt olika varianter av romani chib. Några har talats här länge, andra bara en kort tid.

    Boken fokuserar på de tre varianter som har talats längst i Sverige: skandoromani, kelderash och kale. Förutom språken behandlar boken talarnas kultur och identitet, såväl historiskt som i nutid.

    Boken är ett resultat av det nationella ansvar för ämnet romani chib som 2008-2012 låg vid Linköpings universitet. Delar av boken har använts som läromedel på kurser i ämnet vid Linköpings universitet.

    Angelus Novus Looks to the Future: On the Anti-humanism which Overcomes Nothingness2013In: Teksty drugie, ISSN 0867-0633, no 1-2, p. 80-96Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article aims at describing these philosophical concepts within anti-humanistic narrative, which perceive a chance for the renewal of thinking in the death of some ideas and concepts. Trying to extract certain ‘dominant motive’, which could combine different thinkers such as Donna Haraway, Giorgio Agamben, Antonio Negri and Elizabeth Grosz, one encounters the question of the inhuman, which now is considered neither as a threat nor as a barbarity, but rather a space potentially liberating. A brave mix of that which is human and inhuman: machine, beast, animal, opens a new horizon for questions on the very substance of such a combination.

    Abstract [en]

    This article highlights how environmental issues influence transport planning, andhow they make transport planners rethink previous categorizations of user groups.The introduction of an environmental discourse leads to a questioning of men’stravel activities, i.e. car driving. However, the critique against men’s travelling doesnot address all men. Instead, two types of masculinities are constructed in the localplanning discourse: the first one is a ‘problematic’ obsolete old driver. The secondone is a young ‘quality conscious’ man who opts for new technological solutions.The relationship between these two constructions of masculinities is hierarchical.The transport planners interpret it as their responsibility to make sure that publictransport is regarded as attractive to younger men and their imagined ‘needs’. Theelderly men however, are made scapegoats and are blamed for their unsustainabletravelling. These rather stereotypical constructions of men also include a negativeperception of elderly men. The analysis is based on discussions in eight focusgroups, accomplished in 2009 with 36 transport planners and politicians (24 menand 12 women) working with the planning of the future public transport system in Malmö city in the south of Sweden.

    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses military-patriotic education in Russia, focusing on the example of the nationwide search movement. This civil movement of volunteers is searching for the remains of fallen soldiers left on the battlefields from the Second World War all over Russia. The movement has young people as a main target group, and explicitly wants to make a contribution to the patriotic upbringing of Russia's young. In this work, the movement relates to the official government plans for patriotic education. As the prefix ‘military’ often is used, patriotic education can be seen as one aspect of civil-military relations. In both the government plans and within the search movement, a distinction tends to be made between ‘good’ patriotism and ‘bad’ nationalism, and the article discusses both these notions in the Soviet/Russian context. A number of obligations are central to the notion of patriotism: for the search movement, an obligation to the past, to remember, is the most important.

    I rörelse / On the Move: Acsis Conference 2013, Norrköping 11-13 June2013Conference proceedings (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We are proud to welcome you to the conference On the Move. It is arranged by the Advanced Cultural Studies Institute of Sweden (ACSIS) which is a national center for interdisciplinary and international networking in cultural research. This is the fifth biannual ACSIS conference. All the conferences have had different themes connected to various aspects of cultural research. On the Move explores the “mobility turn,” starting within the social sciences, and it explores the evolution in media studies, cultural studies, sociology, ethnology, anthropology, tourism studies, literature studies and several other areas of cultural research.

    Papers explore movement and/or immobilization across a broad spectrum and within many contexts, from the micro-movements of streptococci to the mobile, or not so mobile, lives of artists and artistic productions, cosmopolitans, refugees and tourists. They address social, cultural and political movements as well as practices embodied in sports, dance and everyday life.

    In addition to the exploration of the spatial mobility of humans, organisms and objects, the circulation across time and space of representations and the vehicles for movement – topics at the heart of the mobility turn – this conference also presents plenary panels and sessions dealing with the transformation of cultural and social norms. The speakers will discuss and debate the changing values with regard to gender and normativity; motion and emotion; the prerequisites and practices of critical research and teaching; the historiography of Europe; and cultural production and consumption.

    In the spirit of internationalization we have decided to alternate between two English, whereas all session slots have English as well as Swedish alternatives. This mixture of languages is a reality for many non-English natives and an inevitable aspect of doing cultural research – on the move – today.

    The conference is supported by Linköping University’s Faculty of Arts and Science, the Swedish universities which co-fund ACSIS, the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation and the city of Norrköping. We are also enormously grateful for and impressed by the non-salaried efforts from all invited speakers, panelists, moderators, session organizers and paper presenters.

    We invite you to discover the conference’s rich and varied content. Finally, we wish to stress that conferences are not only work; they are also a great opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones. In addition to the discussions at the sessions, there will be plenty of time to socialize at the reception hosted by the city of Norrköping on Tuesday evening and the conference dinner on Wednesday night.

    In the Flow: People, Media, Materialities2015Conference proceedings (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We are proud to welcome you to the conference ‘In the Flow: People, Media, Materialities’. It is arranged by the Advanced Cultural Studies Institute of Sweden (ACSIS), a national centre for interdisciplinary and international networking in cultural research. This is the sixth biennial ACSIS conference. All the conferences have had different themes connected to various aspects of cultural research. ‘In the Flow: People, Media, Materialities’ is a continuation of the fifth conference, ‘On the Move’, which explored the ‘mobility turns’ various extensions in cultural research. This conference also emphasizes spatial, cultural and social flows, but the focus is on mediatization and how new and old media interact with bodies, institutions and various industries to produce social, cultural and material effects.

    We are especially proud to welcome our two keynote speakers, Anna Reading, Professor of Culture and Creative Industries at Kings College, London, and Mike Crang, Professor of Geography at Durham University, two scholars who in recent years have set out to rework the borders of, on the one hand, the cultural and the symbolical and, on the other hand, the material and the physical. The borderlands between the representational and the corporeal are explored by the plenary panel led by André Jansson, Professor of Media and Communication Studies at Karlstad University, discussing what body-monitoring technologies do to our experiences of being human.

    The keynotes and the plenary panel set the tone for sessions and individual papers presented by cultural researchers from many different countries. There are, for example, a number of presentations on digital technology. Similar to the plenary panel, some look at the nexus of mediatization and material embodied in everyday life actions and habits, examining the interplay between physical movement and affective engagement regarding wearable devices. Others approach the overarching theme of flows and slowdowns by discussing various aspects of understanding and tracking the circulation of images, music, texts and materialities, such as the mundane practices tied to online searches, methodologies to analyze online data, the curbing of the contemporary abundance of documents in institutions or how patents and copyrights regulate the distribution of on-screen immaterialities as well as material objects.

    The conference suggests that the ways in which digital media saturate contemporary everyday life have energized and renewed classic cultural studies fields, such as the study of identities, music consumption and television viewing. Theoretical redirections such as new materialism and ANT have directed attention to the agency of non-human actors such as computers in cultural processes at the same time as scholars have kept their eyes open for the everyday life agency of, for example, children and young people.

    Digital media are a very significant theme running through the conference. Another is the flows of objects and ideas through space as well as the effect of flows on people and places, investigating, for example, two-way flows between colonized lands and the metropole itself, flowbacks of labour and capital, urban transformations and the reconfiguration of resort cities. A third theme is heritage flows. A series of sessions discuss how new technologies, globalization, policies and changing classification systems set heritage values, exhibitions and institutions in motion. Additional themes such as cultural sociology, feminist culture studies and the future of gender and sexualities remind cultural researchers of the importance of keeping their eyes open for power relations, inequalities, identities and politics.

    We are also very pleased to present our series of spotlight sessions. Here we have invited researchers to discuss time, media history, heritage institutions, the impact of digital media on fan and celebrity cultures, and feminist culture studies. Thanks to an initiative from the master’s students on the Linköping University Programme for Culture, Society and Media Production, we have a spotlight session on education and research.

    The conference is supported by Linköping University’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the Swedish universities which co-fund ACSIS, and the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation. We are also enormously grateful for and impressed by the unpaid efforts of all invited speakers, panellists, moderators, session organizers and paper presenters. We invite you to discover the conference’s rich and varied content, which encourages interdisciplinary exchanges as well as conversaions across empirical fields. Finally, we wish to stress that conferences are a great opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones. In addition to the discussions at the sessions, there will be plenty of time to socialize at the reception on Monday evening at the art gallery Verkstad and at the conference dinner on Tuesday night.

    Extracting the Commons2017In: Cultural Studies, ISSN 0950-2386, E-ISSN 1466-4348, Vol. 31, no 2-3, p. 253-276Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates how resources that are perceived as common are turned into property through different interventions of extractivism, and how this provokes counter-activism from groups and actors who see their rights and living conditions threatened by the practices of extraction. The article looks at how extraction is enacted through three distinct practices: prospecting, enclosure and unbundling, studied through three different cases. The cases involve resources that are material and immaterial, renewable as well as non-renewable, ‘natural’ as well as man-made. Prospecting is exemplified by patenting of genetic resources and traditional knowledge, enclosure is exemplified by debates over copyright expansionism and information commons, and unbundling through conflicts over mining and gas extraction. The article draws on fieldwork involving interviews and participant observation with protesters at contested mining sites in Australia and with digital rights activists from across the world who protest against how the expansion of copyright limits public access to culture and information. The article departs from an understanding of ‘commons’ not as an open access resource, but as a resource shared by a group of people, often subjected to particular social norms that regulate how it can be used. Enclosure and extraction are both social processes, dependent on recognising some and downplaying or misrecognising other social relations when it comes to resources and processes of property creation. These processes are always, regardless of the particular resources at stake, cultural in the sense that the uses of the commons are regulated through cultural norms and contracts, but also that they carry profound cultural and social meanings for those who use them. Finally, the commonalities and heterogeneities of these protest movements are analysed as ‘working in common’, where the resistance to extraction in itself represents a process of commoning.

    The Political Economy of Intellectual Property Rights: the Paradox of Article 27 Exemplified in Ghana2018In: Review of African Political Economy, ISSN 0305-6244, E-ISSN 1740-1720, Vol. 45, no 157Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Orthodox copyright scholarship frames piracy in ‘developing’ countries as a detrimental and illegal practice that results from these countries’ lack of economic, social and cultural development. It argues that piracy needs to be discouraged, regulated, and finally overcome for legitimate business to flourish. In this article, the authors challenge this viewpoint and question whether the implementation of international copyright instruments in legislation across Africa really promotes those local economies or if it merely exposes them to neo-colonial exploitation. While the early international treaties on intellectual property rights (IPR) were formulated by European states and implemented in most parts of Africa through colonial laws, more recent legislation has been globally implemented through institutions such as the United Nations or the World Trade Organization, which remain dominated by Western interests. Through a structured overview of the adoption of IPR treaties in African countries, the authors advance a political economy perspective of intellectual property rights as a (neo-)colonial regime.

    Strukturerade sysselsättningar och fria aktiviteter vid HVB-hem: En intervjustudie om ensamkommande flyktingbarns sysselsättningar vid HVB-hem ur personalens perspektiv2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    De ensamkommande flyktingbarnen som kommer till mottagarlandet hamnar oftast på HVB-hem, inspektionen för vård och omsorg, där de får bo tills de är självständiga nog att flytta därifrån till ett eget boende. Studiens syfte är att studera hur personal på HVB-hem för ensamkommande flyktingbarn arbetar med barnens fritid. Främst för att se hur personalen arbetar  i relation till frågor som rör barns delaktighet i samband med strukturerade aktiviteter jämfört med barnens egna val av sysselsättningar. Vi har genomfört tio semistrukturerade intervjuer med personal som arbetar på HVB-hem. Utifrån personalens utsagor  så kan vi konstatera att grunden till barnens delaktighet är att personalen ska utgå ifrån varje barns enskilda behov.

    Lillan är ingen vanlig flicka: En semiotisk analys av genusframställan i Sveriges Televisions julkalendrar 1996 och 20072009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 25 credits / 37,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker hur genus skapas och iscensätts i Sveriges Televisions julkalendrar 1996 och 2007 samt om det skett någon förändring över tid vad gäller skapandet och framställandet. Detta undersöks genom en semiotisk analys samt med queerteori som teoretisk utgångspunkt. Undersökningen visar att julkalendrarna i många fall bidrar till ett vidmakthållande av stereotypa könsroller. Man kan dock urskilja en förändring mellan de båda kalendrarna då den senast sända ger ett intryck av att producenten gjort medvetna val för att undvika ett reproducerande av könsstereotyperna.
